Lewis tells a fair yarn but the interesting thing is his thinking on the state of Man in the universe. If your looking for escapist fiction, this isn't it. The science is half baked and the dialogue contrived. The ideas, however, are worth pondering.

I typically struggle to finish books, but this one I have read twice now. it will give you deeper insight to Christianity, and is sure to
I love how Perelandra is an adventure story rapped around deep theology.
Geoffrey Howard did a fantastic job reading this book.
brilliantly written book. Very deep. Lewis takes you on a journey that will make you realizes the depths of your own being through its imagery. It will create in you that longing for a word that is not your own, or Lewis would say it is your own.
Mixed bag. Parts of it were engaging and imaginative. A couple of parts droned on and (the ending) left a poor final impression on what was otherwise a generally decent book
CS Lewis dives deep into a fantastical journey to another world. And witnesses a play by the antagonist of all ancient times. Lewis challenges your thoughts as he navigates you through psychological and theological deep waters on a terrain of a celestial planet.
Excellent story, beautiful imagery and language, and thought-provoking dialogue. Geoffrey Howard captures the characters' personality and depth in his performance. This is one of my favorite fictional works of all time and this version is awesome!
Lewis has disguised a discourse as a fiction. It involves a great deal of talk. It is profound, however, and explains the concept of evil and its origins in an eloquent manner.
